G’s Us is a performance art piece by the duo G’s Us (OTION and Giovanni Maisto Ferreira).The duo addresses spirituality through ritual performances that combine elements of hip hop culture, religious symbolism and indigenous ritual practices. 


All the performances and workshops will be offered as an active Zoom meeting (limited places available) and as a livestream on Het Nieuwe Instituut Online.

Every other week, the installation is open to our communities to use as a ritual space for whatever spirit strategies they want to execute and share with our audiences. If you would like to use the space, please apply for a time slot by emailing
